Worldwide Agricultural Labor – High End

Even in the increasingly digital 21st century, residents of some countries remain almost entirely employed in agriculture. Twenty-five countries worldwide have half or more of their employment in the agriculture sector, overwhelmingly located in Africa.

Burundi tops the list with 86% of people working in farming, significantly ahead of second place Madagascar at 74%. Burkina Faso (73%), Niger (71%), and Mozambique (70%) are all close behind.
